How to get straight A’s in college. Seriously.

Yes, even if you’re taking the maximum credit load. Because if I can do it, you can do it too. Note: My credit load also included a handful of honors courses. 

Side-note: I’m going to be a junior (how??) and an RA (!!!) in the fall. Life moves fast. College moves faster. Anyways, 

Here are my top tips: 

1. LOOK AT THE SYLLABUS AND WRITE EVERYTHING DOWN. This is step number one, and it’s not up for debate. If you do this, there’ll be no surprises, and if there are: point it out to the professor (a simple, ??? this wasn’t on the syllabus ??, usually works). Also, you have to check and see what constitutes as an A in that class. Sometimes it’s a 90, sometimes it’s not. (a 96 was an A- in one of my classes last semester. I’m so serious.)

2. Get a calendar. Not a planner. One of those giant calendars with puppies or something on it and write down everything you have to do for the month. Put it above your desk. This helps A LOT because you can see everything you have coming up for the next few weeks, instead of jus playing it day-by-day. 

3. It is OK to use ratemyprofessor. Sometimes it can be really helpful, but pay attention to the more in depth reviews that talk about what the homework, tests, quizzes and projects are like (instead of “her lectures are boring :///) 

4. Sit in the front of your class. You’ll be more likely to pay attention and less likely to scroll through instagram. (by the way, mine is @parissdb :) It also grabs your professors attention, so even if you’re shy, they’ll at least know your face.

5. Do that extra credit. A lot of professors offer it in the beginning of the semester, and hardly anyone does it because no one’s thinking past tomorrow. It may be what saves you in the long run. 

6. Figure out your best method of note-taking. For me, it’s good ol pen and paper. It helps me remember everything. Some people prefer typing it out. This is beneficial bc it makes it easier for you to find exactly what you’re looking for. (Thank you, command + F)

7. Put your effort into the percentages. If an assignment is worth 1% of your grade, do it well, but don’t exhaust yourself. It’s 1%!!!! If it comes down to it, spend more time studying for that exam that’s worth 30% than the group project worth 20. 

8. Please. Stop studying what you already know. We’re all guilty of it. It makes you feel better knowing you have chapters 1-3 down, even if you don’t know 4-7. The key to studying is to learn what you don’t know. 

9. Learn how to study. (Yes, it’s actually a skill that has to be learned.) I’m the biggest procrastinator I know, especially when it comes to studying. But I’ve found that studying 2 days before an exam usually does the trick for me. I create a master study guide during day 1 and study it all on day 2. Depending on what time the exam is, I may review on the morning of day 3. 

10. SAVE SOME TIME FOR FUN ffs. Seriously. You don’t have to study 24/7, and I don’t know about y’all but my attention span was not built for that.

I might add more to this later, or make another post because I could give these tips for ever and ever. But hopefully this helps someone out there.

You huffed in frustration as Tom started laughing again. Folding your arms, you turned to face him, rolling your right foot from your heel to your toes and back. He saw the movement, recognising it as one of your annoyed habits.

“Stop laughing,” you told him. “This is serious.”

He tried to stop, pursing his lips as he tried and failed to suppress a smile.

The stupid, adorable look on his stupid, adorable face had an unwanted smile tugging at the corners of your mouth.

“I’m sorry, babe, I really am,” he told you, still grinning. “I just- you’re taking this so seriously.”

He pulled you in by the waist, and you went almost reluctantly, keeping your arms folded as he kissed your cheek.

“It’s important,” you murmured, pulling another stupid, adorable laugh from his stupid, adorable lips.

“It’s for an instagram video,” he reminded you, kissing your lips this time.

“It’ll be good publicity,” you offered, feeling your resolve slipping as you realised how stupid you were being.

He grinned, letting go of you and stretching his arms above his head.

“For a movie that doesn’t come out until July.”

“Whatever,” you sighed, starting the song from the top again and waiting for him to start. “You go once on your own so I know you’re doing it right.”

He scoffed fondly, beginning the short routine and getting it perfect first time.

“You’re not the only one with years of dance training, Y/N.”

You couldn’t stop the smile this time as he pulled you towards him, kissing you firmly. You could feel his grin through the press of lips.

“Want to film it so we can do something more fun?” he murmured, pulling back and looking into your eyes.

“Yeah,” you breathed, kissing him softly before moving to set up your phone to record it.

“Good,” Tom grinned, pinching your ass lightly as you walked back beside him, getting into position. “Let’s do this.”

the past few days have been extremely productive for me, and I’m so happy about it! I feel like I’m really starting to gain ground on my aspirations :)
It’s only Tuesday so it’s far from complete, but I’m loving this week’s bujo spread so far! 👒🍀
